RhoDeo 1822 Roots


The cumbia "crystallized", through music, the dream of Símón Bolívar: a united Latin America. From the 1940s onwards, modern cumbia spread and became popular throughout Latin America, with which it followed different commercial adaptations, such as the Argentine cumbia, the Bolivian cumbia, the Chilean cumbia, the Dominican cumbia, the Ecuadorian cumbia, the cumbia mexicana, cumbia peruana, cumbia salvadoreña, cumbia uruguaya and cumbia venezuelan, among others. Cumbia is a musical genre from Colombia, which has its origins in Africa. This genre is a mixture of the influence of slaves from Africa, Native Americans and to a lesser extent the Spanish. Being a product of the miscegenation between these cultures during the Conquest and the Colony. The cumbia gets its name from the word "Cumbé", which is a dance of the people of color of the Spanish Guinea, in West Africa. .... N'Joy

The United States of Colombia (Spanish: Estados Unidos de Colombia) was the name adopted in 1861 by the Rionegro Constitution for the Granadine Confederation, after years of civil war. Colombia became a federal state itself composed of nine "sovereign states". It comprised the present-day nations of Colombia and Panama and parts of northwestern Brazil. After several more years of intermittent civil wars, it was replaced by the more centralist Republic of Colombia in 1886.

The music of Colombia is an expression of Colombian culture, which contains diverse music genres, both traditional and modern, according with the features of each geographic region, although it is not uncommon to find different musical styles in the same region. The diversity in musical expressions found in Colombia can be seen as the result of a mixture of African, native Indigenous, and European (especially Spanish) influences, as well as more modern American.

Colombia has a vibrant collage of talent that touches a full spectrum of rhythms ranging from Pop music and Classical music to Salsa and Rock music. Colombia is known as "The land of a thousand rhythms" but actually holds over 1,025 folk rhythms. Some of the best known genres are cumbia and vallenato.

One of the first bands to combine the folk rhythms of Colombia's Buenaventura region and the cumbia of Cuba, Peregoyo Y Su Combo Vacana were known for their unique electric guitar-dominated sound. Reviewing a reissue of their early-70s album, Tropicalismo, RootsWorld claimed that Peregoyo Y Su Combo Vacana "never lets up as it hurls groove after incessant groove at you, sax and trumpet blazing from a path cut by fat, no bloated bass licks, pervasive percussion and searing solo and group vocals". Tthere are touches of salsa, son montuno, and other tropical styles. the music sounds Cuban with touches of Colombia cumbia. But the music is de Colombia. Red hot latin dance music that sounds liek it was recorded in teh late 1950's. Great stuff, lot's of improvisation, and a real tight band. The lively horn rythms featured in these tracks are held tegether with electric guitar picking and the need to just get out in the street and dance and play! They parade Colombian traditional sounds with the coming technology of electric base and guitar to generate rock steady vacana. This is a reissue of an early-'70s release by a band alas long defunct. The style is your basic salsa-cumbia (salsa-currulao, salsa-porro, etc.). But Peregoyo's group stood out for a splendid mix of originality and down-home tipico, plus an improvised solo trumpet lead to the frontline that gave the whole thing far more flair than the usual arranged horns. It's spiffing all round...

Born in Buenaventura on January 10, 1917, musician Luis Enrique Urbano Tenorio was known as "Peregoyo" for his most famous composition, which bore that name.  In the 60s he founded the Peregoyo orchestra and his Combo Vacaná, so-called because its members came from Valle, Cauca and Nariño.  It was the first great orchestra to spread the music of the Colombian Pacific.  The bonaverense musician was one of the most versatile interpreters and composers in the Pacific.  As a child he learned to play by ear the guitar, the bandola, the violin and the cello.  Later he studied composition and learned to play saxophone, participated in the Municipal Band of Buenaventura and then created his famous Combo Vacaná. Among the general works of Peregoyo are more than 120 compositions, many of which were not recorded.  For posterity are the themes My Peregoyo, Warm Nights, Dreaming, Ana Cecilia, Al prisoner and of course those recorded by the famous Petronius Alvarez, including his classic "My Bonaventure", in the voice of Markitos Micolta.

On January 10, the centenary of the birth of Luis Enrique Urbano Tenorio, Peregoyo, is celebrated.  That is why, at the beginning of the commemorations of a year that will be dedicated to his memory, Peregoyo, El Rey del Currulao.

Grupo Niche is a salsa group founded in 1978 in Cali, Colombia. Currently based in Cali, Colombia, it enjoys great popularity throughout Latin America. It was founded by Jairo Varela and Alexis Lozano. Varela remained with the group throughout his life, serving as producer, director, songwriter, vocalist and guiro player. Alexis Lozano, trombone player and arranger later left to form Orquesta Guayacán. The group also included Nicolas Cristancho, on the piano; Francisco Garcia, on the bass; Luis Pacheco, on the congas; and vocalists Jorge Bazán and Hector Viveros.

Grupo Niche's first album: "Al Pasito" was released in 1980, did little to challenge the dominating salsa band of Colombia at the time, Fruko y sus Tesos. The following year, however, the group found success with their second album, "Querer es Poder", particularly with the single "Buenaventura y Caney".

The group relocated in 1982 to Cali where they have been based since. After recording two more albums, Grupo Niche released "No Hay Quinto Malo" in 1984, which featured their signature song, "Cali Pachanguero". The tribute hit single to the "world salsa capital" catapulted Niche as one of the top salsa bands of Colombia.

In 1986, the band incorporated Puerto Rican vocalist Tito Gomez, who had previously worked with the famous Puerto Rican salsa group, la Sonora Ponceña, and Ray Barretto, the Godfather of Latin Jazz. Later that year, Grupo Niche released "Me Huele a Matrimonio". Afterward, yet another Puerto Rican joined, the pianist Israel Tanenbaum, who would eventually leave the group to join a Niche spin-off band: Orquesta Guayacán.

Grupo Niche is known for both its vigorous, uptempo dance music as well as slower-paced romantic numbers. Among its best known hits are "Cali Aji", "Del Puente Pa'llá", "Sin Sentimientos", "Una Aventura", "Etnia", "Gotas de Lluvia", "Han Cogido la Cosa", "Mi Pueblo Natal", "Hagamos Lo Que Diga Corazón", "Duele Mas", "Nuestro Sueño", and the famous cumbia "Canoa Rancha". Their most famous song is "Cali Pachanguero". In 2002 they recorded the album Control Absoluto in Miami Florida with the engeniers Alex Arias and Jossel Calveiro.

Some other singers from Niche throughout its history include Alvaro del Castillo, La Coco Lozano, Tuto Jiménez, Saulo Sanchez, Tito Gomez, Moncho Santana, Charlie Cardona as well as Willy Garcia and Javier Vasquez, now members of the group 'Son de Cali'. Most recently joined are the Puerto Ricans Oswaldo Roman and Julio Lopez and actual singer Elvis Magno from Buenaventura. They have been very successful, and some of their songs are considered Classics of Salsa Music. The group still enjoys some of its past successes, and keeps on tour, making worldwide presentations, and singing their most memorable songs. Musician Tito Gomez, who fronted the group for seven and half years (1985–1992), died on June 12, 2007 in Cali, the city where Grupo Niche was established.

Arroyo began his musical career at the young age of eight when he sang in a strip joint in his hometown of Cartagena. His first break came after he signed with record label, Discos Fuentes, in 1971, and was overheard by bass player, singer, composer and producer Ernesto Estrada, better known as Frugo, who recruited him for his band. Arroyo continued to work with Frugo for the next decade. Although he nearly died from a drug overdose in the early ' 80s (comatose for 3 months), Arroyo recovered and in 1981 Joe brought together the most talented musicians of the barranquila area to form his own group - La Verdad (the Truth) . Featuring Arroyo's songs and arrangements the band was an immediate succes . La Verdads eclectic arrangments and fusing of different Caribean and Latin music, Pancaribean salsa , Cuban son, Cumbia, Merengue, Zouk and Calypso.

Committed to the roots of his music, yet unafraid to introduce modern elements, Arroyo has established himself as both a great folk musicologist, and a vital contemporary voice. There are few in the ranks who can both present an indigenous style typically associated with staunch nationalism, and simultaneously show no one style preference over another, while performing everything with equal respect and grace.
